My Stay at Olympic Hotel in Kigali (Rwanda)

My 3 nights stay at Olympic Hotel in Kigali Rwanda was wonderful. The staff is very friendly, trustworthy and professional. The success of this hotel could be attributed to its General Manager, Mr. Safari Andre. The man is very dedicated. As I was about to leave to the airport to catch my flight back to the US, a flight that was very late at night, Mr. Safari reamained at the hotel in order to drop me at the airport. He was very kind to me and to his staff throughout my stay. As a manager of a staff, I was interested to see how he was doing. I learned a lot from. Hi people-oriented style was amazing. I highly recommend this hotel to any American travelling to Kigali, Rwanda. Check out on the manager, Mr. Safari. Thanks. Guy

Laisse à désirer

Mon séjour a été mal passé car je m’attendais à un hôtel comme cela se présente sur votre site mais ce n’est pas le cas. Ensuite on m’a donné une petite chambre sale très chaude sans avec de l’eau chaude bref c’et La galère. La nourriture mal préparée et le service clientèle pas du tout professionnel en tout Pour avoir la même chambre que vous m’aviez promis pourtant il y avait plusieurs chambre grande avec lit de luxe vaste vide. Mais il m’ont demandé 80€/jour. Étonnant non.

Stayed 4 nights in Feb 2018
